Global Alliance against Child Sexual Abuse Online: New Report and Threat Assessment

17/03/2016

The Global Alliance against Child Sexual Abuse Online has just published its second report on the progress of its 54 participating countries in working towards achieving the Global Alliance’s policy targets:

  • Enhancing efforts to identify victims and ensuring that they receive the necessary assistance, support and protection;
  • Enhancing efforts to investigate cases of child sexual abuse online and to identify and prosecute offenders;
  • Enhancing efforts to increase public awareness of the risks posed by children's activities online, including grooming and self-production of images that results in the production of new child pornography that may be distributed online; and
  • Reducing as much as possible the availability of child pornography online and reducing as much as possible the re-victimization of children whose sexual abuse is depicted.

Together with the report, the Global Alliance secretariat has also compiled a comprehensive threat assessment, based on participating countries' input, which provides a clear picture of the changing landscape of child sexual abuse online and a strong call to action for all.
